Auspices (2nd Edition)

Jump to: navigation, search

While Luna is the mother of all //Uratha//, only the Forsaken receive her blessing in the form of their Auspice. Depending upon their habits and personality they will attract Luna's attention during one of her five aspects. Under her gaze, or perhaps because of it, they will undergo their First Change and be forever tied to one of her faces, drawing strength and purpose from her.

Cahalith - Those who Change under the Gibbous Moon

Dreamers, seers, storytellers, and care-givers. Those who look beyond themselves attract Luna's notice whenever she shows the world a more relaxed mood. They are the visionaries, entertainers, and scholars who care as much, if not more, for others than themselves.

Elodoth - Those who Change under the Half Moon

The fair and just, open-minded and objective are the only ones who can earn Luna's concern whenever she begins to turn away from the world. They seek balance and perspective, never content with only one viewpoint or simple answers, making them ideal judges, investigators, and diplomats.

Irraka - Those who Change under the New Moon

Trickery, deceit, and cunning are the qualities that will meet Luna's approval when she hides herself from the world. Able to blend in to their surroundings or even disappear completely, wherever they may, and fool even the most discerning eyes, the best trackers, scouts, spies, and stalkers find their First Change under this Auspice.

Ithaeur - Those who Change under the Crescent Moon

It has been said that the occult mysteries of the world can only be viewed from the corner of one's eye and it is when Luna does just this that she will clearly see the mystics among the //Uratha//. These individuals are the ritemasters and ritualists who gather secrets, lore, and wisdom from the //Hisil//.

Rahu - Those who Change under the Full Moon

Those who are warriors, first and foremost, gather Luna's attention whenever she faces the world fully. Whether meeting an enemy on the field of battle with tooth and claw or rising to the challenge of some other adversity, //Rahu// are passionate and relentless in their pursuit of victory at any cost.
